As an industrial engineer, your job consists of designing, evaluating, and improving systems. At St. Ambrose, our emphasis is on how humans fit into those systems to ensure safe and productive work. Courses include industrial design, materials science, engineering dynamics, work systems design, ergonomics, system integration, and operations planning, scheduling and control.
The Industrial Engineering program from Saint Ambrose University is accredited by ABET, and we are the only university in the Quad Cities region that offers this degree. If you want to dual major in both Industrial and Mechanical Engineering, we offer that option, too.
Full-time students generally earn the dual major in 4.5 years (or less), and we give part-time students up to eight years to complete either engineering program. No matter what you choose, you will work closely with engaged faculty who give you a real-world education in and outside the classroom.
You can work in design, manufacturing, robotics, electrical systems, quality, process improvement, and in civil engineering for local, state and federal governments.
The Bureau of Labor Statistics puts the median pay for industrial engineers at $84,310 and the field is growing (2016). In fact, 95% of SAU engineering program graduates who pursue employment are working in the field. Many of our students are sought out by employers before they graduate, and 99% of domestic students have a job in place before they graduate.
